Publication of the outcome of the inquiry
The Board of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI) is committed to transparency in its work and strives to ensure the confidence of the public. These principles underpin any decision taken under its publication policies of information on fitness to practise inquiries and sanctions.
